“Liveable income is necessary for an individual to exit the sex trade. Without it, a person is unable to sustain housing and meet other basic needs. A job that understands trauma and gives dignity, affirms a person’s value beyond their body and increases the possibility to continue work in the future.” -Audrey Baedke Community Advocate Supervisor Real Escape from the Sex Trade (REST)
